Bottles by Jim Dingilian

While you are doing your house cleaning and getting rid of dust, ashes, smoke and other dirts, some people are making Art from it. Why not!

Especially hen you see this kind of work which I think is totally amazing:

How does he do it : He uses candle smoke to paint picture-perfect images on the inside of empty bottles by scratching it once the smoke deposit formed.

“The miniature scenes I depict are of locations on the edge of suburbia which seem mysterious or even slightly menacing despite their commonplace nature. The bottles add to the implied narratives of transgression. When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artifacts of consumption, delight, or dread. As art objects, they become hourglasses of sorts, their drained interiors now inhabited by dim memories” Jim Dingilian says bout his art.

(après avoir enfumé la surface de bouteilles en verre, gratte ensuite la suie collée sur les parois créant ainsi divers paysages monochromes. Un travail fastidieux pour des œuvres étonnantes! «Comme les objets d’art, ils deviennent des sortes de sabliers, leurs intérieurs drainés maintenant habités par de vagues souvenirs.»)

Go admire those bottles at the Museum of Art and Design.

It is pay what you wish every Thursday from 6 to 8 and you will have access to every exhibit. Get lost into the different levels and enter in this wonderful world of people who do things that you would have never thought about and will make you dream...

Don't forget to step by the museum store, those are always like Ali Baba's cave.
